How to make your pasta plate a bit lighter, you ask? You can still rock those hot skinny jeans and have that lasagna too! Here’s a favorite that you and your family will devour and love with zero guilt.
My to-die-for Lemon Basil Lasagna Rolls
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
**Place the lasagna noodles in single layers, directly on a baking sheet to prevent pasta from sticking together!
In a medium bowl, blend the low-fat ricotta, lemon zest, dried herbs, and sea salt to taste.
On a clean cutting board, spread out 4 noodles. Top with roughly 3 tablespoons of ricotta mixture, spreading evenly over each noodle. Start at one end and work your way over the whole noodle, creating thin layers for less mess! Roll each noodle tightly across to make a compact spiral. Repeat with all 12-15 noodles.
Cover the bottom of a 13×9-inch baking dish with 1 cup of the marinara.
Place the rolled noodles neatly into baking dish and cover with the remaining cup of sauce. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Place on the middle rack for best results.
To serve, top with lemon zest and more fresh basil leaves. Enjoy with a perfect glass of Pinot Grigio. Buon Appetito!
